Well, I'll definitely check out Twisted's IMAP4 code. Thanks!

I was sort of planning on keeping all the message metadata in the Lucene DB.
MH uses a filesystem structure too. Maybe there's hope.

This doesn't sound too far from what I intended, actually.
I'd like to keep the Lucene index in memory, and don't particularly
want the overhead of process swaps, so I'd like to be able to use them
together in a single address space. It sounds like you've worked out
most of the issues with IMAP4, so I'll take a closer look.
